Responsible Investment activities

See what actions we take as part of our Responsible Investment strategy

Our focus

As part of our Responsible Investment strategy, our activities are primarily focused on the following three areas:

Integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment research process and our ongoing monitoring of investments.

Engagement to promote strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices with the companies and funds in which we invest by:

  • regular company meetings
  • exercising our voting rights (in Public Markets)
  • our board memberships where we have them (for unlisted, private investments).

Working closely with policymakers and other investors, where appropriate, to bring about positive change in market standards and regulations to protect and enhance our interests in the UK and globally.

You can read more about this in our Responsible Investment Report.
